Method - 1
1. Use can click on Dashboards => actions => add actions =>
2. Before add actions, you can select one of three options available in tableau ( Filter, Hover, Go to URL., )
3. Once you select one of them (let's say if you select Filter) it directs you to filter actions window
4. In action filters, you play with source sheets and target sheets.
Method - 2
you can directly activate filters options in worksheets which are attached to your dashboard.

Thank you for your reply.
I do understand the use of Dashboard actions. However this does not seem to apply to hovering over the name of the Measure Value.
I can get this to work when I hover over the actual data points (such as the relevant countries like Germany, Italy, France etc). However I want the dashboard action to trigger when I hover over the NAME of the relevant metric (Profit Year 1, Profit Year 2, Profit Year 3 etc).
Thanks for your reply too suman kumar.
